This application allows users to view groups of slides, in any order, or consecutively in autopilot mode according to a timed interval you choose. Each slide is a DHTML layer that contains an image and descriptive text. Your slides could conceivably contain almost any combination of text, graphics, DHTML, and the like. These slides give the user a fictitious tour of the wild animal kingdom. Figure 3.1 shows the opening screen.
